    I've only watched a handful of TOS so i went and looked it up. Seems nerds gave it the "12 parsecs" treatment to make canon agree when the actual showrunners can't be bothered.

    From memory alpha:
    In 2269, an image of Kahless was created by the Excalbians in a plot devised to better understand the concepts of "good" and "evil". The image was considerably flawed from the original Kahless, with such notable discrepancies as being infected with the Klingon augment virus and wearing a 23rd century Imperial Klingon Fleet uniform. The Excalbian version of Kahless appeared and acted quite differently from the original, since the image had been created from reading the minds of Humans who, at that point in Starfleet history, saw Kahless as a ruthless tyrant, and had had far more contact with Augment Klingons (or their descendants) than with standard Klingons. The Excalbian version of Kahless also had a talent for mimicking voices. (TOS: "The Savage Curtain")

    Just a reminder that the show starts tomorrow night. If you haven't herd much about it, it's because there is an embargo of the show until after the first episode airs. That's always a clear vote of confidence....lol

    If your in the US

    CBS will air the first episode tomorrow night and then the rest of the shows will be on their All Access streaming service.

    If your in Canada

    The entire season will be on Space Channel every Sunday at 8:30 pm est. For French Canadian viewers you can watch the entire season of Discovery on the Z channel starting on September 24 at 9PM ET. If you miss any episode you can watch it on the Space Go app or watch it on Crave TV streaming service.

    For the rest of the World

    The entire season will be on Netflix.

    Just pirate it. Don't reward these dickholes for putting up a fucking paywall for one show.

    Yup, pirating the shit out of this show. I fully expect this to get cancelled after one season because of how stupid tying it behind a streaming service is.

    The Orville is the only Star Trek series I recognize at the moment.

    Well I'm not going to pirate it, but I'm not going to pay for their shitty streaming service that has zero other shows I want to watch.

    Just saw the premier, and it was a cliff-hanger, but I didn't see much that I liked aside from it looking really pretty. While I certainly don't mind a good space battle, I don't see Star Trek as a war story (DS9 doesn't quite count that way), and that's what this series seems to be about. It really does feel like the newer movies, shrunk down to a TV series, so it doesn't really feel like Star Trek as we're used to. The only spark of personality were three people; there rest of the crew is just cardboard at this point.

    saw the first 2 ep, it was a hot mess..

    Already do not like the main character, we will see where the story goes. I will give it a couple more ep.

    I am glad The orville is doing well.

    Surprised. Watched the first two, thought it was not bad at all. No spoilers, but I presume there are reason's for some of the criticisms that we'll find out in the next couple of episodes for sure.

    Kinda annoyed it's not bingeable though

    After the 're-introduction' of Star Trek to today's audience with the new movies, I'm not surprised to hear this. I don't know if the classic space exploration themes of the previous series would draw and keep an audience today like it did back in the 90s. I haven't invested anything yet into this series so I'll probably wait until the season is out before I give it a try.

    #NotMyStarTrek ; ;

    I had a geek giggle at the first ep. intro when it zoomed out, then it all went downhill from there

    SciFi action series where they casted the main character because in the right lightning she looks a little like Rhianna. (don't mind me, I'm just grumpy feeling cheated of my exploratory adventures in favor of bread and circus for the masses.)

    Supposedly I am hearing it should get better when they introduce the real crew etc, cus I am def not liking the single character focus at the moment.

    Yeah, while many seasons of DS9 were devoted to the Dominion War, it was never a celebration of battle. It was always about the cost of war, whether it was the loss of life, the trauma to the survivors, or the compromises the Starfleet officers had to make to their morals to win.

    In The Pale Moonlight is the best episode of any Star Trek series. Fite me.

    In the pale moonlight is without a doubt one of the highlights of the Star Trek franchise as a whole, it's up there with TNGs The Drumhead with Picards speech " 'With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured... the first thought forbidden... the first freedom denied – chains us all irrevocably.' "

    Well, if you want to do quotes.

I don't know about you, but I'd call that a bargain.
